I got mine at 12yo, I'm 5'1 and didn't grow any more after that. I don't mind being short, except in crowds or at gigs, at supermarkets there's usually a friendly tall person that will get things down off the top shelf for me!
She has probably only grown another 2-3 inches since then (is now 15 so unlikely to grow any more)
I didn't start my period til I was almost 14 and don't think I grew any more in height after that
DD and I are same height (5'8" ish) so I would assume that if you start your period younger then you have more chance of carrying on growing in height for a bit longer but I think an extra 5" is probably unrealistic
The growth plates fuse only a couple of years after periods start so early starter tend to be smaller with only a couple more inches ti grow. It was certainly true with mine and DD's friends. We were the early ones.
Want to ask advice on this for a long time. How do you deal with it when people make fun out of your small size and height. I find it very annoying whenever people do it to me. Now I worry my daughter has to deal with too. I m only 5f 2.5in. I don’t have a problem with my height but I hate it when people constantly point it out. I think there should be a body image campaign about height as much as weight and skinniness.
I started at 13 and at 5 feet 2. I grew two and a half inches more but slowly. Amongst my own friends the earlier starters are shorter on average, but had been tall for their age at the time of starting.
I have a tall DD. She hated being 5ft 8" and was so relieved to get her period two years ago at 13. She has recently grown another two inches (to her horror). I think she's gorgeous but she wants to be small and cute like her friends. Can't please them all!
